Alex slept well last night. He woke up twice and cried out - in a scared, where am I type of cry, but quickly went back to sleep. Mama, on the other hand, had a SUPER hard time going back to sleep after cry #1 (circa 3am), and had just about fallen asleep when cry #2 happened (circa 4:30ish). Alas, the little man made up for it by sleeping until 8:45am! Thank you!!
We woke up on the Wedding side of the pond, to total domination on TV of the Royal Wedding. Basically, 2 of the 4 english speaking channels were on non-stop coverage. Thankfully, I was totally caught up in it - so I was in bliss!
After a quick jaunt down to breakfast, in which Alex ate MUCH better (buckwheat type oatmeal; cheese, yogurt and bread) we ran to the small local grocery store to get some chunky baby food. It worked in Vlad with Tati - so I thought it might help the man. According to his baby home, he was a great eater -- and he has the tummy to prove it. So I think it's a matter or things being all new -- including some food tastes.
What's this stroller thing all about?
He had a little of the stew type baby food for lunch - including carrots - OH NO! Something orange! Egads! (According to his doctor he is allergic to "all things orange" - uh huh. riiiight.) And while he didn't love the chunks of chicken, he ate some of it. He gobbled down the apple baby food, which was essentially super smooth applesauce - of course he liked that one, I only bought 1 bottle!!
He was happy 90% of the day. He cried a little in the stroller on the way to the store and then again in the store. He typically pipes down quite quickly. Thankfully. Crying babies make me sad! We did another bath tonight -- in the vain of trying to get him used to it. NO LUCK. It was worse. And now, to make matters worse, he cries anytime he gets near the bathroom! Hopefully, his sister can help him get accustomed to baths when we get home. Again, they told me at the baby home that he LOVES his baths. Riiiight. After that he was just tired, grumpy and mad at mama for making him take his bath.
Grumpy at mama...
We went for a walk around the floor of our hotel - it's like a triangle, so you can do a complete loop. We came back and I tried to lay him down in his crib, but he would have nothing to do with that. He WANTED to be snuggled. He's a total snuggle monster!! So after laying on mama's chest for 30 minutes, he's still awake, but laying peacefully in his crib. Strike that -- after a quick peek -- he's zonked. Night all!!
